AB Steele’s Shipboard Journal – 17 April 1886

Arose at 6.30 am and found we had just got under weight and to find that the sun was blazing hot. The sailors being busy pulling up the awning to protect us from the rays – for it was rather hot I can assure you.

We had a miscellaneous concert, the 1st and 2nd class joining with the 3rd thus creating a grand programme consisting of pianos, banjos and fiddles. Also concertino solos, duets and various songs. The Ships surgeon was the Chairman, and was quite a success. A few remarks from the Chairman, and other passengers, concluded the Programme.

Distance 307 miles.
